Life can feel like a race,
leaving us a bit winded
by its unrelenting pace,

like bicyclists pedaling uphill,
legs churning,
we move through our days
trying to reach the top
of some elusive peak,

we search for more,
but can’t ignore the simple truth
that finding more
often feels like less,

maybe there’s a blessing in knowing
we are more or less
navigating the same path,

a path that is infinitely more
rewarding when we travel
with a lighter, less burdened spirit.

  2. Your encouraging words of inclusiveness, and sharing paths, make our journeys seem so much more possible.

    1. Thanks, Judy. I know I need a constant reminder that we are all traveling the same finite lifetime, with subtle variations on the route. May your journey be light on this first day of May! xoxo
